I Write to Live, I Live to Write

I write to live.
I write because I'm free

The reason I write is to simply be.
No one achieves the same style as me
I like that whatever I write is unique
I write to entertain and to share something deep

Poetry's the essence of self-expression;
Providing acceptance and helping the "helpless"
From treating depression to soothing the restless

Yes I want death to kindly stop for me
And if it should wait at the end of my street,
Then I'll leave my writing behind for all to see
That way, I'll be OK if I must leave

I'm free because I write
I live to write.
